Thought of the day: Happiness and pain

September 1, 2016

By Eddy Montilla.


Happy and sad moments share something in common: They always come to an end and they always revive. The biggest difference is that when your happy moments die, not always sad moments are born as a result of it, but when your sad moments die, as a reward, your happy moments are reborn to bring you consolation, peace and, above all, to make you feel happier. If you are sad because you lost your job, someone very important to you passed away or for any other reason, remember that happy moments die, but so does pain. Be patient, hold on tight, hang in there. Sooner or later, your pain will die and your good moments will be reborn to be at your side.

Thought of the day: Haste and failure

August 21, 2016

By Eddy Montilla.


You have probably heard that desperation is the origin of failure. This is partially right. In math, the number two exists because there is a number one. Well, desperation is the number two. And number one? It is called haste.

     A person had to pay the rent of his house and a car he bought on hire purchase by tomorrow morning or… (you know already what will happen to him.). He did something illegal to get the money. In cases like this one, people usually say that he did that in his desperation, but if you analyze carefully his situation, you will notice that the real reason was not that, but the rush to get the money. If he had had one or two months to pay, he would not have done something illegal. Stay away from haste and you will stay away from failure.

Tell me the answer: How can you get rid of the stress caused by the lack of time?

July 19, 2016

By Eddy Montilla.


A simple replacement of words can help a lot to reduce the stress caused by the lack of time. Use “still” instead of “only”, and you will notice some benefits immediately. Let’s see an example: When you do not have time, the phrase “I only have 10 minutes” leads only to despair and haste while “I still have 10 minutes” gives you a hopeful and promising perspective of the problem.

Last Love Poems: She went away…

She went away…

Don’t ask me why.

Don’t the waves do the same after kissing the shore?

Does the moon stay with us every day at dawn?

Birds leave their nests when time has come,

petals say goodbye to flowers full of hope,

passion dies when love has gone

like happiness does without little things inside.

Water escapes if the soil is dry

and clouds, clouds are blown away by the wind.

Even our friends go away and

the remembrance of them will not stay.

She went away…

Don’t ask me with whom,

because love and freedom take the same path,

but it is always freedom that should go first.

I never think about names, people or places.

If someone exists, he will be there.

It doesn’t make sense to think about him:

It would take up my time,

the time I need to think about her.

I don’t want to imagine how he could be,

I don’t want to destroy all she did.

She just went away…

Don’t ask me where:

Any place is perfect when tranquility is found.

Distance grows over time, but much more over pain.

Who cares about places when there is no love.

Her presence was my compass, the west where the sun sets.

I don’t know where I am. I know where I’m from.

I don’t know where she is, but she will not come.

She went away…

Don’t ask me when.

Any time is good to leave,

to start from the beginning when we reached the end,

to say no when it hurts us to say yes

and to say yes when we don’t have a no.

Yes, she went away…

And I also have to do the same,

but with my best smile, without haste,

holding my head high

and ignoring what people were saying.

I cannot walk the same path.

I will not run after her,

after oasis of calm I cannot see,

a cruel mirage that makes me bleed.

Because thanks to our enemies’ actions we can recognize and value our truly friends.

By Eddy Montilla.


To detect what you love and do well first, and then, to use these things to make actions that can have a strong and positive impact on as many people as possible.
